Shoplifters of the World starring Joe Manganiello and Ellar Coltrane.

That’s a dedicated fan of The Smiths.

In Shoplifters of the World, one fan will go to great lengths to play The Smiths over the radio. As his friends listen to the songs, the music changed their lives overnight in this drama.

The movie stars Helena Howard (Madeline’s Madeline), Ellar Coltrane (Boyhood), Elena Kampouris (Sacred Lies), Nick Krause (The Descendants), James Bloor (Barkskins) with Thomas Lennon (Reno 911!) and Joe Manganiello (True Blood). Stephen Kijak wrote and directed the movie.

Here’s the official synopsis:

In the Summer of 1987, four friends, reeling from the sudden break-up of the iconic British band The Smiths, embark on a night out of partying to mourn their musical loss. At the same time, an impassioned Smith fan takes a local radio DJ hostage at gunpoint and forces him to play nothing but Smiths’ tracks. With the radio station playing as the soundtrack to their night, the friends go on a wild journey of self-discovery that will transform them forever.

Featuring an incredible soundtrack – including 20 songs from The Smiths – Shoplifters of the World is a glorious ode to the craziness of the ‘80s and the power of music to change people’s lives.

This film easily gives off the same vibes as many coming of age films with a music backdrop like Almost Famous and Empire Records. Those films end up being a feel-good movie that puts a smile in the end. Gotta love these movies. Let’s put this on the playlist to watch.

Shoplifters of the World is in theaters, On Demand, and available as digital on March 26.
